The Tourist Trail: Free for a limited time…

For the next two weeks I am participating in a unique promotion, organized by Margi Prideaux, that showcases 20 environmentally themed eBooks on Instafreebie.

Yes, these book are free to download. All you have to do is sign up for the author’s email list.

To see the full list of books, click here.

The promotion goes from today until June 15th.

And I think I speak for all authors by saying that if you enjoy the book we welcome your reviews on Goodreads and Amazon. These reviews really do matter — and not just to our egos.

And now some great news for Magellanic penguins

Punta Tombo

The Tourist Trail takes place on the site of the world’s largest Magellanic penguin colony and, though the book is fiction, the colony is very much real.

It is located on the coast of Punta Tombo, Argentina. And this coastal region has long been heavily fished, which means penguins have for decades been caught up in nets and longlines, a tragic fate.

I’m thrilled to find out (via Dee Boersma) that the waters off the coast are now protected as a designed Biosphere Reserve, officially called the The Patagonia Azul biosphere reserve.
